Reeven Hans RC-1205 Review


Reeven Hans RC-1205 Testing:

Testing of the Reeven Hans RC-1205 will be accomplished by installing the cooler into the test system case, rather than a test bench. Most systems are built and mounted into a (relatively) sealed chassis, so this method will be used to generate the idle and load results to give a real world view as to the cooling performance one can expect, based on the test system listed below. Of course, your results may vary by several degrees due to case design, case fan placement, and ambient air temperature. The CPU load is generated by Prime 95 version 27.9 for a period of two hours, with a cooldown period of one hour after the computer has returned to an idle state. Real Temp 3.70 is used to log the temperatures with the highest and lowest averages across the four cores of the Core i7 4770K test CPU. Ambient temperatures are kept at 24 °C during the testing to minimize the effect of temperature variations. Each cooler is tested with the manufacturer-supplied thermal compound as delivered.


Testing Setup:


Comparison Coolers:











At idle, the Reeven Hans RC-1205 has no problems keeping the 4770K CPU at 26 °C stock with the included fan, which is of course no surprise. With the CPU loaded, the temp pops up to 74 °C, which is a little warm, but certainly not dangerous.

As for overclocking, we are at 32 °C at idle, which is just fine, and close to 9 degrees warmer than stock at 83 °C under load, which is excellent. I was expecting it to be a little warmer, but the heat is held to 83 °C. Just for giggles, I added a second fan from the Reeven RC-1204 that I am also reviewing and I was only able to knock the OC load temperature down by just under two degrees. Temps are fine with one fan, so I won't complain. The Reeven Hans RC-1205 can keep you cool whether your system is a daily driver or geared up for a mild overclock.
